Cadec Global First to Deploy Integration Between On-Board Computer (OBC) and ALK Technologies' CoPilot Truck 9

Provides Over-the-Air (OTA) Map Updates Along With Integration of Customer Routing Software for Seamless Delivery of Turn-by-Turn Directions to Cadec's OBC

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - Cadec Global, which provides enterprise-class fleet management solutions, announced today it now integrates with ALK Technologies' CoPilot Truck 9, providing immediate benefits to PowerVue customers by helping fleets increase driver efficiency and compliance, reduce out-of-route mileage, and improve driver safety. CoPilot Truck's on-board, voice-guided GPS navigation solution stores detailed ALK Maps™ of North America enhanced with industry standard PC*MILER truck-specific routing directly on the Cadec OBC.

Among the major benefits to PowerVue customers are:

  • Over-the-air (OTA) map updates available to all drivers for faster, more accurate navigation and route updates;
  • Integration with customer-routing software for seamless delivery of turn-by-turn directions to Cadec's OBC;
  • The ability to easily avoid and favor roads and locations;
  • The ability to find the best sequence for up to 50 stops to reduce out-of-route mileage;
  • Fast automatic route recalculation, to prevent drivers from getting lost;
  • Access to over 7 million Points of Interest (POIs) with phone numbers -- including truck stops, truck services, rest areas, weigh stations and CAT Scales; and
  • A non-distracting driver safety view along with flexible and clear 2D and 3D map views.

Overall, integration of Cadec's PowerVue solution with the latest version of CoPilot Truck can help fleets improve driver efficiency, compliance and safety. Specifically, the integration allows fleets to improve back-office productivity by reducing driver support needs, increase on-time performance and customer service, reduce out-of-route mileage, and improve fleet efficiency through increased asset utilization.

"We've worked closely with ALK Technologies for several years," said Jon Bernstein, CEO of Cadec. "Cadec is very proud to be the first enterprise-class fleet management solution provider to integrate and deploy with the latest version of ALK's in-cab navigation solution. Driver efficiency, safety, compliance and overall fleet performance are the top priorities for our customers. CoPilot Truck 9 integrated with our PowerVue solution helps fleets meet these goals, and we will continue to integrate the latest technologies from our partners into PowerVue."
